Trump fumes over FBI raid that targeted payments to women: aides

Trump fumes over FBI raid that targeted payments to women: aidesBy John Walcott, Jeff Mason and Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump was fuming on Tuesday over FBI raids of his lawyer’s office and home in search of details about ties between Trump and two women who say they had sex with him, aides said.
